    Got to meet him this week. He was head coach at Marshall 4 years from 2014 to 2018. Won the City Championship in Div 3 in 2017. It’s not CIF though.

    I liked what he preached at the meeting. My boy said the kids really like him.
    Let’s hope he can help BG win a CIF Championship.
    Big names couldn’t do it. Newell, Ramos, Ackerman, Beltran.
    Let’s see what a no-namer can do.
